Emerald Ranch is a settlement in Red Dead Redemption 2 in The Heartlands region of the New Hanover territory.


A large, prosperous cattle ranch in the central Heartlands, owned by a ruthless capitalist who is intent on undermining the smaller farms in the area. The railway station nearby allows for easy access to the ranch, helping it to dominate in livestock trading.[1]
